Cardiff City vs Barnsley
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).
Cardiff City seem to be making a crucial step towards booking the top-two finish at the end of the season as the four-win streak saw them go four points clear off the third-placed Aston Villa after 34 rounds of the competition. The Bluebirds have been rock-solid at the back keeping their net untouched din each of the games during the process and they will have a nice chance to keep such an impressive run going on Tuesday evening when they host the relegation-strugglers Barnsley-.
The visitors did manage to arrest their slump in from and escaped the danger area at least for a while by picking up four points from two previous league ties. The new manager Jose Morais took the most out of an easier schedule and clashes against the likes of Birmingham City and Hull City but his men are about to come face to face with a much stronger opposition this time out.
Cardiff City own the best defensive record in the entire league with only 27 goals conceded in 34 matches. The Bluebirds have by no means had an easy schedule as they’ve played the likes of Middlesbrough and Bristol City in the last two home outings. Moreover, Neil Warnock’s men have not conceded a single goal in last four league fixtures at Cardiff City Stadium and they should well be in position to maintain such trend against the likes of Barnsley here.
Cardiff City vs Barnsley: Head-to-head
The head to head stats also speak in Cardiff’s favour since the Welsh outfit has won 11 and lost only 4 of 20 H2H encounters with the Tykes.
Barnsley have failed to find the back of the net on last two occasions against the Bluebirds who came on top (0-1) when the two teams met in this term at Oakwell Stadium.
